Womb Healing Checklist: Menstruation

As a woman, you will benefit from practices of ‘Healing The Womb’ if you –

  1. Have taken on the belief that your menstrual cycle is (or was) something to be ashamed of
  2. Felt dread or shame as a child (or adult) at the thought of blood staining your dress and someone noticing it
  3. Felt dread or shame as a child (or adult) when someone discovered a sanitary product in your bag or purse
  4. Have been conditioned to believe that you are impure when you bleed or because you bleed
  5. Feel embarrassed if someone (especially a male) gets to know you are on your period
  6. Believe menstrual cycles are a huge problem women face, possibly even a curse.
  7. Couldn’t care less about the body asking you to slow down during that time of the month and try to be as energetic as always.

This checklist is meant to help you bring awareness to areas you may be feeling stuck in as far as menstruation is concerned.

Don’t worry! You aren’t the only woman who’s going to be ticking off a lot of the points on this checklist.

And it isn’t your fault if you feel a particular way. We are all products of societal, cultural, and religious conditioning. And if you want to break free from this conditioning, you always have a choice to be the change you wish to see.

You can choose to play a part in birthing a new higher consciousness – one in which we aren’t ashamed of our bodies and their natural functions anymore.

And the first step to that is developing awareness of where you are as a woman and of the areas within your consciousness that can be rewired.

Once this awareness begins to set in, no one can stop you from embracing and enjoying your gift of womanhood fully.

Womb Rose Meditation

In this meditation, we will connect to the womb through the energy of the rose.

To me, the rose is symbolic of love, affection, beauty, joy, and abundance.

By using the rose as a bridge, we will enter the portal of the womb, blend the energy of the rose with the energy of the womb and see what this opens up for us.

Process

  1. Sir or lie down in a comfortable position.
  2. Breathe in deeply through your nose and out through your mouth until you feel centered. This should take you a minute or two.
  3. When you feel ready, place your palms over your womb and breathe for a few more seconds.
  4. Visualise or feel an orange rose bud appearing within your womb. If you feel like picking some other colour, feel free to do so.
  5. With your awareness on the rosebud, continue to breathe.
  6. As you breathe, visualise or feel the rosebud blooming into a nice fragrant rose flower.
  7. See or feel the qualities of this rose filling up your womb space.
  8. Continue to breathe until your womb feels full with the energy of the rose.
  9. Now slowly, direct this rose energy blended with the energy of your womb to any or all of your other chakras. Keep breathing as the energy does its work.
  10. Now visualise or feel this womb rose energy moving out into your energy field and forming a cocoon around you. Breathe for a bit more.
  11. Be open to any insights you may receive at this time. If nothing comes into your awareness, that’s perfectly OK too. Just relax and enjoy the experience. Shifts can be very subtle and you don’t necessarily have to feel something all the time.
  12. When the process feels complete, move your body gently and open your eyes slowly.
  13. Express your gratitude to Womb Rose Energy.
  14. Drink some water and be with yourself for a while. Write down about your experience in your journal if you wish to.
  15. Repeat this meditation whenever you feel like it.

I am not going to tell you what you can or should expect from this meditation, for there is no way for me or for anyone to know about how it will unfold for you. These inner processes are very personalised. You will receive exactly what you need- depending on where you are in your journey as a woman and a soul. Trust the process and enjoy it!

Womb Healing For Mamas Of Pregnancy Loss

What happens to your connection with your womb when you lose a baby you were carrying?

It’s a make-or-break situation. The connection can be destroyed OR you can transform it into an empowering milestone on your journey.

If you’ve had a miscarriage, medical termination, stillbirth or any other kind of pregnancy loss, you know it can rip the heart apart.

And at times it may feel like others don’t get what you are going through.

When I had a pregnancy loss and I was upset about it (which I thought was natural), I was told by some people –“Well, you’re not the only one who has gone through this. It’s quite common. Get over it.”

Their response made me wonder why I even bothered to share my feelings with them – like I didn’t already know that other women in this world have also experienced it!

I know many have had it even worse than me – millions of women have had multiple losses, millions have not only lost babies but also their own lives in the process of giving birth.

But that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t have grieved my loss.

Losing a baby – no matter at what stage of fetal development – can be a devastating blow to the mother, father, and to everyone in the family. For some reason, the womb is not able to sustain the pregnancy. This can leave a feeling of emptiness in the womb as well as the heart.

Some of us may know the energetic root cause behind a pregnancy loss, and we may have made peace with it or we may not have.

Some of us may be racking our brains wondering what in the world went wrong.

Either way, it doesn’t matter anymore.

If you are now on the path of womb healing, have the confidence that you are ready to take a quantum leap to discover yourself on a whole new level.

As painful as the loss was, from the soul’s perspective, it was only leading you to an even grander place. You may not have arrived at that place yet. You may still be looking for clues that will lead you to your destination.

But remember – the journey is often as significant (if not more) than the destination itself. So, place your faith in the journey and take it one step at a time.

It has been more than a decade since I lost Siri in my womb (the name we gave to our baby angel who could not make it).

However, thanks to my energy healing practices, I have been able to connect to her soul essence all these years. It feels like she is around very often – in a non-physical form of course.

I feel Siri has been and continues to be my soul teacher. Her loss put me on this path of healing the womb. She opened my eyes to the mystery of the womb. She helped me connect to my feminine glory and to be proud of it. I am awakening to the power of my Divine Feminine only because of her. She has been a primary instrument in the healing and blossoming of my sacral chakra.

And while all these blessings don’t make the pain of losing Siri any less, I am so grateful to her beautiful soul for everything she made possible through all that pain.

She continues to linger like a sweet fragrance – pure and unconditional.

She is and will always continue to be our first child. Her two equally angelic siblings (in incarnation now) take second and third place. The family tree feels healed and complete that way.

This is my story. Your story will be unique to you.

In the context of womb healing, what could be the silver lining to your pregnancy loss?

That is something only you have the right to answer.

You can’t think your way to the answer. You have to feel your way to it.

There is no hurry to answer it. Let the answer take birth softly in your heart.

If you resonate with this article, you can be certain there is something beautiful unfolding for you.

Trust that the answers to all your questions will come when you ask them from your heart and are ready to receive them for what they are.

Trust this journey of building a new ‘Womb Consciousness’ on the planet!

Womb Healing For Cesarean Birth Mamas

I know a lot of women who are unhappy about the fact that they required a cesarean section to bring their babies into the world.

They usually report feeling angry or inadequate, like they weren’t capable of giving birth naturally.

While it is perfectly normal to feel those emotions, this is a trauma you don’t want to carry in your womb. On the healing path, we have enough to deal with already. For our own well-being, it is best we learn to see things we couldn’t have done much about from higher perspectives so we may be free to move forward.

Womb Healing For Cesarean Birth Mamas

  1. Completely acknowledge the emotions you are feeling. Journal about them or use EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). The more you acknowledge them, the faster they are neutralized and easier they become to release. This paves way for you to see the same upsetting event from a different perspective and heal yourself in the process.
  2. Reflect on why you needed a cesarean section in the first place. You would have been informed by your medical team about why you required the surgery. This surgery is done when allowing labour to progress naturally poses a risk to the baby or mother. Until several decades back, rates of infant and maternal mortality were pretty high. Women risked their lives in order to give birth. Thanks to advances in medicine that make a timely diagnosis of complications and intervention possible, mortality rates have been brought down significantly. Yes, you were deprived of your natural birthing experience. However, you or your baby also gained something in the process. Acknowledging the benefit you received will help you release the associated trauma faster and may even bring in feelings of gratitude.
  3. Contemplate on feelings of ‘let down’ you may be holding on to. If you feel like your body let you down by not allowing you to birth naturally, ask yourself if that’s true or if it’s just another limiting belief you’ve taken on. A lot of women hold on to the belief that in order to be seen as women they must be perfect in every way – fair, beautiful, slim, blemishless, perfect moms, wives, and daughters and the list goes on. Could it be that you’re harbouring a subconscious belief that says you must also be the perfect ‘birther’ of life?
  4. Nature is perfect and imperfect at the same time. There is nothing like a ‘perfect birther.’ Left to nature, births happen perfectly and imperfectly all the time. Left to nature, some mothers and offspring survive, some don’t. This is the case with animals too, and not just humans. That’s just how nature works on Planet Earth. When seen from this perspective, have you ever considered that it may not even be your fault or your body’s fault that you couldn’t have a perfect natural birth?
  5. Having said that, it’s also equally true (at least for those of us on the healing path) that our outer world is a reflection of our inner world. There are times when we know why we manifested a certain experience into our lives. There could be soul lessons to learn, especially if something bothers us more than it should. Looking at an experience from your soul’s perspective may help you find answers to deeper questions you may be asking and bring solace to your body, mind, heart, and soul.

In conclusion, remember, we are at a pivotal point in the story of humanity. Many of us women now have the freedom to awaken to the power of our Divine Feminine and our wombs. Nothing that you experienced – physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and medically – can stop you from awakening and connecting to your womb on a whole new level. The only thing that can stop anyone is their reluctance to see events from more balanced perspectives and their unwillingness to let go of stored pain. Accepting life for what it presents while also being open to its mysteries and newer possibilities can bring peace and healing.

Healing The Womb: A Journey Into Your Sacral

I see the womb as a sacred space, a powerhouse.

However, for many, this sacred powerhouse turns into a junkyard that houses trash of varied kinds – negative beliefs around menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, and sexuality, and wounds associated with any or all of them. These beliefs and wounds can block their connection to one of the most beautiful energy centers – the sacral chakra.

I did not always see the womb as sacred. Until some years back, I held some very negative beliefs about my womb too. I saw my menstrual cycles as a nuisance and childbirth as something to dread.

Being on the healing path has taught me the significance of the womb and completely shifted how I view it.

The womb houses your creative potential. From an energetic perspective, this creative potential is not restricted to creating new life but to creating anything of value, beauty, or significance.

Connecting to your womb is a healing journey in itself.

Just as Reiki begins to speak to you when you connect to it, the womb also speaks to you when you become quiet enough to tune in to its wisdom.

I will be writing a lot more about this in the future as I explore the depths of womb healing and deepen my understanding of it.

But for now, all I wish to say is –

  1. There is beauty in your menstrual cycles. When you stop seeing them as a ‘nuisance,’ they reveal their splendour to you.
  2. Much like the moon, your cycles get you to travel through different phases – sometimes you are full of energy, sometimes you are low on energy, sometimes you shine bright, sometimes you encounter darkness, sometimes you brim with creative potential and get into ‘doing mode’, sometimes you retreat and need to ‘just be.’ When you are completely in sync with your body, you will know exactly how it is feeling at a given point in your cycle. Our worldly responsibilities may make it impossible for us to live in perfect accordance with the phases of the cycle. However, we can certainly do as much as we practically can. Something is better than nothing!
  3. So also with pregnancy and childbirth – when you see them for the miracle that they are and come into sync with the process unfolding within you, your entire experience of it shifts.
  4. What if you don’t menstruate anymore? What if you’re way past your childbearing years? What if you cannot bear children for some reason? What if you do not wish to bear children? Doesn’t matter. You still have a womb and you can learn to connect to its wisdom. Even if your physical womb has been removed for medical reasons, you still can connect to the energetic equivalent of it – your sacral chakra.
  5. And how could doing all of this help you? Personally, I have found that healing my womb has freed up a lot of stagnant energy and put me in touch with all aspects of my womanhood on a much deeper level. I feel more at ease within my body and enjoy my cycles. I try to live in accordance with the wisdom of my cycles to the extent possible. My creative potential is at its peak and I am able to churn out creative projects effortlessly. I cannot go back to the days of my pregnancy but I am able to connect to the experience energetically, relive it on a whole new level and integrate this new healed energy into my being.

I have a feeling this journey is going to get deeper and reveal more to me with time. I will share it with you as it unfolds. Until then, do see if you would like to embark on this sacred journey of healing your womb. If you feel called to it, you can be certain the path will be revealed to you!
